with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> reporter: trying to capitalize on the visit by to washington, the white house released detailed, state by state reports. in california, 9,600 low-income students could lose financial aid. in texas, nearly $68 million for teachers and schools could be slashed. and in virginia, 90,000 civilian defense department employees could be furloughed. the president punctuated the urgency. >> all of us are concerned about our politics. both in our own parties as well as the other parties. but at some point, we've got to do some governing. >> reporter: still, there have been no negotiations. no progress all weekend. not even a phone call between the president and republicans in days. so why the lack of movement, especially if the cuts are so drastic? >> what you're seeing right now is solely that political positioning, trying to put themselves in a place where they are the ones dictating the terms of the eventual agreement to their political rivals. >> reporter: but the anticipation is already breeding anxiety. >> the sequester is part of t
with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> the president will be in newport news today to discuss the local economy, particularly military spending. the president met at the white house. they are critical about how the president is handling the situation. >> now is a time for him to show leadership, proposed $85 billion, propose the are you ductions in a more balanced way. every government has to do it. >> i could not be more frustrated. how many more times are the governors going to have to pick up the mess of washington, d.c. my kids could go find $83 billion out of a $4 trillion budget. this is not rocket science. this is an inability to want to get to work. >> we could provide an alternative. we have shown you can do it. we have done it state by state. it's time to do it at the capital to make it happen. >> joe biden addressed the association about the politics. >> people are tired are being tired. then they are ready to get up and move. you know that. it's happening in your states. you probably feel in your fingertips more than most of us do here in washington. i think they a
to comment on to harry reid. this weekend talking about more taxes. he says, the american people are on his side. here he is. >> the american people don't believe in this bustier things. we believe that the rich should contribute. we believe we should fill those tax loopholes, get rid of them, i should say, and that is where we need to go. gerri: do you agree? >> no, i don't. john kennedy did not agree. ronald reagan did not agree. they did not agree back in the 1920's. it is never worked in the history of this country raising taxes to bring in more revenue. by the way, the revenue is projected for this year, over two and half trillion dollars. that's more than we took in last year, more than we took in in 2007 and 2008. it is always and has always been a spending problem in washington d.c. look at what is going on in california. wall street loves what california is doing, but remember, the people who voted to raise taxes in california made it retroactive, so what happened is nobody could do anything to get away from the extra increase in taxes, but now we have it here to work on that. let

you think you should be going after harry reid as well? >> well, listen. i think harry reid has been clear that he will bring this for a vote. there's a bipartisan group of members of congress working on this issue, in particular universal background checks. and i don't think that democrats are the issue here. there are a number of republicans including self-proclaimed moderates who have yet to commit to support something that has the support of 90% of americans. columbine may not have happened if we had universal background checks. those guns were purchased at a gun show without checks. this won't solve every issue but it'll go a long way in terms of addressing the problem. >> great to see you. >>> i want to bring in our friday political power panel. gang, it's great to have you all here. let's dive into sequestration because it's just so fun. david brooks' article in the "new york times" saying the president hasn't come up with a proposal to avert sequestration let alone one that is politically plausible. peggy noonan in "the wall street journal" is saying it's always cliff ceiling
the american public when he can go one mile down and talk to harry reid. you know, look, we're talking about 85 billion dollars. we borrow 85 billion dollars every 25 days. all we're doing is taking what we cut for a month in less than a month. >> greta: did you agree with tom coburn that the crisis is made up? >> by far. we have more revenue in 2013 projected. what the president asks for, to take more from the american taxpayers, if you can't take the cut how can we put this place back in order. and many go back in 2009. were planes not flying there, were people not getting their first responders then? no, why is the president creating the hysteria when really we should get this government under control? >> why is he doing that, if he's doing that. >> because he's never gotten off the campaign trail and that's what's wrong, why i call him the road show president. the saddest part about all of this, and the divided government you achieve big things. you can't achieve something if he's out campaigning. you've got to be able to govern and lead. and we're willing to work with him, but he's got to
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline? "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome board to the tv barn, everybody. what does that mean?

. nonetheless, harry reid, given the fact that we're facing that looming deadline on friday, he says the republicans can fix it all if they do the one thing they absolutely won't do, which makes this impossible, and that is jack up taxes. >> those cuts will go forward. they are all cuts. i think we need some revenue to take the pressure off everybody. the american people agree with me. until there's some agreement on revenue, i believe we should go ahead with the sequester. >>gretchen: it's interesting because the president talks about compromise. i know time goes by fast. but the republicans just did compromise and they did raise taxes. in fact, everyone's taxes went up because you're all paying social security again now. the tax-free holiday is gone. it's amazing to me that this messaging is still out there, that this is all about taxes. by the way, senator reid, americans don't agree with you totally. here's a rasmussen poll. the best way to slash the deficit, reduce taxes alone, only 6%. reduce by cutting spending: 45%. a combination, more spending cuts than tax hikes: 36%. >>st
to harry reid. bill: that is cab fare, by the way. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard." fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning bill. >> president is on the road. no meetings to talk about this between senate leaders and house leaders. no meetings with the administration. friday there is no session on the schedule for congress. >> right. what's different about this one is that in the past, the fiscal cliff, these other things you at least staff to staff contact and negotiations and ongoing discussions, sort of largely out of public view. that even is not happening in this scenario. i think we're likely to see the sequester come march first and see how it plays out the next month. bill: if it comes, this deadline is little different from what we've seen in the past, steve. >> right. bill: this is gradual. make it works its way into the system a little bit at a time during the month of march. for sure during april. >> right. bill: it seems to have a different feel. there is not the urgency there. >> it does. this is where the white house is having, creating some
's and says he should call harry reid, who runs the senate, and which has yet to act. >> shepard: they could just call it all off but they're not going to do that. they're having way to much found at owl expense. thank all of them. >> a news think tank thinks north korea has picked up work -- satellite photos reveal a rice in traffic at the nuclear sites and the institute warps it doesn't have new evidence to confirm or deny a new test might be in the works. the north korean state released another propaganda video, showing our president and our troops in flames. here is a frequent guess on the subject. what are they doing now? >> they certainly are going for a fourth nuclear test soon. they have to make sure the bomb works so they can sell it to the iranians, and the other thing is kim jong-un needs to resolve his position. he has to appease the generals because north korea is a militant case, has a military first policy so he needs to do what they wont. also, king ongoing -- kim jong-il is reported to have told his son to continue with the nuke and missile program so north korea could be a
released but gop aides released he should call harry reid from his own party and who coals the senate. >> shepard: secretary of defense leon panetta also warns the cuts with hit the pentagon especially hard. while a great deal of the money would come from military training units 000s of civilians could face big pay cuts and even layoffs. particularly in two states. jennifer griffin at the pentagon for us tonight. >> reporter: iif the deep budgt cuts go into effect in 8 days time the hardest hit states will be california and virginia. 17% of the defense cuts in virginia will likely fall on one community known as hampton roads. in fact, the human impact of the sequester on small businesses in this area, these businesses contract to the navy, it is already being felt. tom taylor owns a ship repair business near norfolk. some of his contracts with the navy are already in jeopardy. >> it is not like turning on a picket. you don't turn it on and turn it off. if it is canceled these things are are months or years in the planning stage. if they are canceled they don't come right back, you kno
. the president was serious, he'd sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> fox 5's will thomas here now to talk about how widespread these cuts will be. >> we are talking about drastic cuts that will affect every state including d.c. hundreds of local federal workers and civilian workers with the department of defense would lose paychecks. look at some of these staggering numbers. tens of thousands of people furloughed. today president obama worked to recruit the nation's governors to do something. president obama is urging the nation's governors to help pressure congress to avoid the catastrophic spending cuts scheduled to begin friday. >> companies are preparing layoff notices. families are preparing to cut back on expenses and the longer these cuts are in place, the bigger the impact will become. >> reporter: unless lawmakers compromise on a way to cut deficit massive cuts kick in totaling 85 billion by the end of this fiscal year. >> we need a balanced approach. that's what makes our states move forward and create jobs. >> now is the time to cut spending. it ca
, and the reason why it was 58 votes is because harry reid switched his vote to no soap the senate can bring it back up again. you have a lot of republican senators who were saying last week that they did not want to see it go up in filibuster. at least it would be an up-down of the to be approved. there was no precedent to filibuster a choice like this. and the republicans decided they wanted to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on issues like the terrorist attack in benghazi in september, and so they are committed to passing a goal when they come back. the way you are looking at it, it is a tedious exercise in delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed. he will just have to wait 11 days. you should confirm him because you are going to confirm him anyway. it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to do. host: harry reid set a new vote for tuesday, in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: they say they would like answers again from the white house, more details about what the president did and did not do
in the past. so i don't -- you know, the story of the last two years is that, you know, john boehner, harry reid, barack obama, always find some way to pull a deal out of the fire. so it would be silly to bet against that, but i agree with charles. it's harder in this case to see -- i think you can draw it up on paper, but it's harder to see where the parties come together. the reasonable thing to do would be to say, let's cut the amount we're going to be spending in half and let's agree on doing a little means testing to medicare, which they're both in favor of and let's not get so focused on absolute dollar figures. >> the clock is ticking. gloria, appreciate it, charles and ross, thank you. >> a family lost at sea off the coast of san francisco, and a murder trial making the casey anthony look, well, boring. x-rated evidence, too many lies to count, plus a defendant who won a singing contest from prison. it's all bizarre. we'll be right back. concerns as we age. it has 7 antioxidants to support cell health. one a day men's 50+. i have to know the weather patterns. i upgraded to the new s
, you know, john boehner, harry reid, barack obama and so on always find some way to pull a deal out of the fire. so it would be silly to bet against that. but i do agree with charles. it's harder in this case to see -- i think you can draw it up on paper, but it's harder to see where the parties come together. i think the reasonable thing to do would be to say let's cut the amount of spending that we're going to cut in half, and let's just agree on, say, doing a little means testing to medicare, which the white house and republicans are both in favor of. and let's not get so focused on absolute dollar figures. but i'm pretty sure that's not going to happen. >> well, the clock's ticking. we'll follow it. gloria, appreciate it. charles and ross as well. >>> up next, the desperate search for family lost at sea off the coast of san francisco. and later, a murder trial that is making the casey anthony saga look, well, boring. it's got x-rated evidence, too many lies to count, plus a defendant, well, who won a singing contest from prison. the whole thing is bizarre. we'll be right back. h
the sequester. >> john: but who passed it, paul? senate majority leader harry reid kind of knows the answer to that one. >> 174 republican house members voted for this. 28 republican senators voted for this. this is not the president's sequester. >> john: you killed filibuster reform but that's another argument. mr. obama's bill. though a gang of eight in the senate is working on immigration, president obama has said he will step in if the evident fails. while some republicans accuse the president of failing to lead, a leaked white house proposal on immigration had other republicans calling for mr. obama to stay out. republican senator marco rubio insisted that "if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress." a bill that he pretty much agrees with all of the contents therein and congressman ryan, like the speaker of the house saw more machiavellian mischief from the white house. >> the president on most of these issues and this one now like the others, seems to be looking for a partisan advantage and not bringing the parties together. >> john: loyal oppositi
eternal. the president can sit down with harry reid tonight and work with senate democrats who have the majority in the senate to move a bill. it's time for them to act. i've made this clear for months now. and yet we've seen nothing. >> now, he wants them, senator, to move legislation that passed in the last congress. the last congress is irrelevant right now. you need new legislation in order to pass a bill. >> wolf, what's not irrelevant is last congress we had the tax increase. so now it's spending cut time. the president doesn't want to to the spending cut. we had the tax increase -- >> right now, to avert this fiscal crisis we have right now, these forced spending cuts, you need a new bill. you can't use a bill from the old congress. >> the president -- you know what, and i think scott walker, the wisconsin governor, said it, let the president come out and say, here's where we're going to cut $85 billion in spending. the bottom line is the president doesn't want to cut spending. it's $16 trillion in debt. he doesn't want to cut spending. >> he does want to cut spending but he
. it was obama and jack plouffe and rod who went to the tktic leaders harry reid and this is the solution, but everyone has their fingerprints on this. >> we're getting video of the exact moment a kansas city restaurant exploded. missouri investigators releasing this surveillances footage. jj's restaurant was completely destroyed in a ball of fire and an employee killed in the blast felt up to a mile away and 15 injured and as many as six remain hospitalized. aerial views after the beloved restaurant was reduced to rubble. investigators say construction crews struck a natural gas line triggering the explosion. serious new questions for nasa after the agency failed to protect a massive explosion of a different type. the cosmic kind. here is video of the meteor that blew up with the force they say of 30 atomic bombs, injuring a thousand people and now a top republican is demanding to know why nasa never saw it coming and asking whether our space agency would be able to protect america if a meteor were headed here. and joining me an associate professor of physics at purdue science. and this
to the left that they can't-- all right i've got to go. >> the bills have been passed and harry reid won't bring them up. if you want to compromise get in the game and-- >> we've had that debate and the two parties see it very differently. in any event, kind of depressing, isn't it? and thanks for being here, though. thanks for being here. and maybe this will cheer you up, can you sue your parents for not loving you enough? we'll investigate that next. >> kelly's court is back in session. a 32-year-old man accusing his parents not loving him enough as a child so he's suing them for a hefty allowance. bernard bay is homeless and yet an aspiring record mogul. he blames his parents for his situation and saying they weren't loving or nurturing at all when he was a child and now he's asking a judge to force him to pay up claiming $200,000 should set things right. his mother says, bernard, get a job. adding that she has had a lifetime of old bernard and she's done. can you really sue for this? jonna spilbor is a former prosecutor and now defense attorney and julia is a former prosecutor and n
are applied. harry reid and other democrats, however, respond to that. i think this can be done responsibly. whether it is domestic spending or defense. what the president does have in his advantage here is republicans are somewhat divided in this. i think it is important for the republican caucus to stick together on this. dagen: what about that i am a conspirators sometimes, what if the economy continues to chug along at the casting, then it kind of points to the fact that more cuts should have been. you can say i am an idiot. >> i think the administration is concerned because their base does not want to see this. they have political concerns. i do not think they are practical and the terms of the government's ability to move forward and provide services and so forth. they are more worried about the political out, i think. connell: lower gdp estimates, or is there at least some individual companies that will be affected? >> the spending that obama has wanted, he has gotten. spending has increased. what do we have to show for it? the slowest economic recovery in three generations. dagen: s
reid yesterday filed a motion to limit debate and force vote on the hagel nomination. harry reid said today, though, that republicans are mounting a full-scale filibuster of the hagel nomination. he said that there's never been a filibuster of a secretary of defense in the country's history. discussion on the nomination continues. senator leahy on the senate floor now and that is live on c-span2. also coming up live on booktv.org later today at 7:00 p.m. eastern, stephen hess who wrote "whatever happened to the washington reporters: 1978-2012." he interviewed journalist who is were covered the federal government and washington and 30 years later talked to 283 of those to find out where things went on in their career and the fields they covered. that discussion with stephen hess gets under way at 7:00 and that's at booktv.org. >> we have a habit in this country, if i may say, now of glossing over presidents. we decided, some people, that they're balancedying -- bald eagles and they have to be treated as symbols of the country. what that means, though, is you have -- you have a smoothin
the sound bite from majority leader harry reid but he said he grew up in a town filled with brothels. you know he's from nevada near las vegas area and so he's used to quote salty language and so this didn't offend him but he said, wolf, that the speaker should know who is sitting on their posterior. if this is the language they are using before the cuts go into effect this may be a more exciting story. >> how effective has the president been in delivering this hard hitting message basically totally blaming the republicans for refusing to compromise? >> well, the goal here is to make this really feel, make americans realize how much this will hit home and how much the budget cuts will impact their own pocketbook. the latest polling shows that's had mixed results. right now 60, 6-0 percent of americans believe these forced spending cuts will hurt the overall economy. only 30% think it will have a major impact on their own personal finances. and politicians, insiders, both democrats and republicans tell me they think more americans have to really feel it in the pocketbook before democrats a
have barack obama who is a democrat, president of the united states. then we have harry reid who is the majority leader. so the democrats are in control of both. now, if you think back at what happened back in -- during the last bush administration, we had exactly the reverse. george bush was president of the united states and the democrats were a minority. same situation. so what happened? first of all, we had bolton come up, john bolton. same thing, subjected to a 60-vote margin. we had steve -- dirk kempthorne. all remember dirk kempthorne. there are a lot of people who did not approve of him. he was appointed by bush, a republican, and then when he came over here, the democrats didn't like him, they subjected him to a 60-vote margin. that wasn't a filibuster. this isn't a filibuster today. people are trying to say that and blame me as being the bad guy that's causing a filibuster. it's not the case at all. any more than it was the case back in the 2005-2006 and other times when we had a nominee that was put forth by president bush. it was objected to by the democrats. now, di
written on it, "press here for a message from senator king." [laughter] the bad news is, it was in harry reid's handwriting. [laughter] listen, the message is really simple. we have got to start talking to each other, solving problems, we have got to get rid of the ideology and you have got to be fired up to make it happen. the forces of division are fired up. the forces that want to pull us apart and put us into categories are fired up. there has to be support for people who want to solve problems, who want to tell the truth, who want to work a five- day week, who want to do the things that we need to do to get this country going. it is what is on the minds of the public. i was the only candidate in the country where people had a real choice. if you stop and think about it, your choices are determined by the parties by large. in maine, people had a third choice. my favorite comment from the whole state was that people came up to me and said all my life, i wanted a chance to vote for none of the above. and you are it. [laughter] [applause] but the point is, people are more interested in
. the senate has not budgeted anything. they have not come up with a budget plan. harry reid and the democrats. they want to put blame on the tim -- put blame all the time, puts the blame on them. our deficit now is 1.5 trillion dollars. it's three times the amount. if we don't start cutting now and worrying about our country, we will not have a debate anymore, we will not have a country left. all these geniuses. let's start cutting fraud of all these illegals collecting all fair and food stamps in my state. let's start cutting that. there are many things we can cut. but nobody wants to do anything. we're going to go down with the ship. host: on twiter -- we already have read these. i apologize. if you would like to continue the conversation on sequestration, you can go to our facebook page. there is a lively conversation going on. that will continue throughout the day. a couple more articles before we get to some of our gas segments. obama chooses and environmentalists executive for the interior. there's a picture of president obama and sally jewell, nominated to be secretary of the interior.
for lobbyists. senator harry reid has a son in law who has lobbied since 1999. guest: a lobbyist related to a senator cannot lobby in the senate unless the relationship was established more than two years before the senator took office. and the person was a lobbyist before that time as well. there are pretty strict rules. you cannot talk to the one you are related to. in the house, the rules are different. you can talk to any member of the house except the one you are related to. host: does that mean if you cannot talk to members of the senate, can you still talk to the house and the white house? guest: absolutely. there's no rule about talking to other agencies. host: sarah bryner, research director at the core center for responsive politics, they keep coming in this morning. opensecrets.org. next, mental homeless in the united states and a closer look at the mental health care system. first, a news update from c- span paul radio. >> in a preview of tonight's state of the union, the associated press as saying that president obama will announce 34,000 u.s. troops will be home one year fr
wallace on sunday morning. this was the president's idea. he approached harry reid with the idea. >> and they agreed to it. bill: house spub republicans voted twice to avoid and eventually capitulated. a lot of fingerprints. hang on alan. >> they vote the two to one for this. bill: in one second. in the end you're right about that. this is november of 2011 when the president suggested that any effort to veto or any effort to continue with these cuts would ultimately be vetoed by him. not my words, his. roll this. >> already some in congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. my message to them is simple. no. i will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts, domestic and defense spending. there will be no easy offramps on this one. bill: no easy offramps, tucker. forget about if the cuts come his way. no. how do we square that with what is happening now. >> i will say alan is right, that the republicans agreed to this. they didn't think it would come to this. this is again, a brilliant negotiating ploy on the part of the president, unfortunately i
with the sequester idea. in fact he has the exact time and date when they first pitched it to senator harry reid, july 27th, 2011. what's your read on that? >> very detailed reporting by bob woodward there. it's an interesting take. certainly the republicans have jumped on. it's been a debate over the last few weeks about who -- actual lit last few months about whose idea this was. you have jack lew, the former chief of staff to the president, up for treasury secretary who said it at a hearing. this was a republican idea. you see the president has sort of hinted at that, too. more recently jay carney at the white house has acknowledged this isn't a white house idea. the republicans are making a big issue of that. as much as the white house is fanning the flames of concern now, sounding the alarms this week it was their idea. they're saying the president needs to come and meet us and sort of acknowledge we gave a little bit on the fiscal cliff on taxes and not going to do it this time. that's the strategy the republicans are using to pin it on the white house. >> joann, they're really blaming the
